Istanbul, Turkey, July 3, 2014 – After their senior women’s team claimed the Turkish Championship in May, VakifBank’s youth and junior girls’ teams dominated their respective divisions and seized two more championship victories under the celebrated Turkish volleyball club’s name.

VakifBank’s youth team started conquest on June 17 in Eskisehir by sweeping the six matches in their division. The junior team played in Izmir and won their five matches to complete VakifBank’s reign in all age groups in the women’s division.

After these achievements, the President of VakifBank Sports Club, Mr Osman Demren, expressed his satisfaction and pointed out the importance of investing on the youth.

“Our teams achieved great feats in becoming champions in the youth and junior levels in the span of two weeks,” Demren said. “We always say that the investment we made in the youth and junior level is very valuable and important. We have actually done what is supposed to be done and we have paid great attention to our youth teams. We have been working for 28 years to develop successful players for Turkish volleyball, and likewise raising good people for our society.”
